Okay,we a re abotu to have the "what is a MUD" debate...

Let me just say this:  Its a game with a ver primitive and simpel combat
system, a detailed world full of lots of little "toys" to learn to play
with and manipulate and rpetty good charcter-customization features.

How GOOD a MUD it is i wont address, but the goal abnd work was clearly
fuocused on building a world ratehr then a game, whcih is why I consider it
a MUD but not NWN or DSO.
